When you have an American Express card, you may find yourself eligible for special discounts at retailers. Some AMEX Offers are targeted to individuals while others are open to every American Express cardholder.
You can register almost all your American Express cards excluding corporate cards, gift cards, and prepaid cards like Bluebird.
Here are 3 AMEX Offers I found interesting. The 1st 2 are open to everyone!
- $10 statement credit when spending $75 or more at Whole Foods Market
- $10 statement credit when spending $50 or more at JCPenney
- $10 statement credit when paying $75 or more for your cell phone bill with AT&T Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon Wireless. And you can do this up to 3 times!
I’ll tell you about the restrictions, as well as how to get the discounts!
Three AMEX Offers to Save You Money
1. $10 Off Your Wireless Cell Phone Bill
You can log into your American Express account to see if you were targeted for this discount. Here are step-by-step instructions for how to see the AMEX Offers waiting for you.
You may find you’ve been offered a $10 statement credit when you pay a cell phone bill of at least $75 online with AT&T Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon Wireless by November 15, 2014.
You have to register your American Express card by August 15, 2014. And you can get up to 3 statement credits!
For folks who get offered this deal but do NOT have a $75 monthly bill, you may want to consider paying $75 toward your future cell phone bills to qualify for the $10 statement credit.
To get the credit, you have to pay online and directly with your wireless provider.
I wasn’t targeted for this deal, but some folks at FatWallet were.
2. $10 Off at Whole Foods
Register your American Express card with Twitter and tweet #AmexWholeFoods. Then use your registered American Express card in a Whole Foods store while spending $75 (not hard to do!) and you’ll get a $10 statement credit on your AMEX bill.
